Create Dynamic Group for Office 365 Groups | P1 License

Want to create a dynamic group for Office 365 Groups?

In Azure Active Directory, you should be able to create a group that is set dynamically depending on rules. This can be done through something called RULE-BUILDER.

It can be done. But it requires a P1 license for every account a part of the Office 365 Group/Unified-Group. This is $6 per month.

1-start POWERSHELL (as-admin).
2-type: Import-Module AzureADPreview
3-type: $LiveCred = Get-Credential
4-type in your username/password.
5-type: Connect-AzureAD -Credential $LiveCred
6-type: get-azureadmsgroup
7-type: get-azureadmsgroup -id 6541651431314646546541 |fl

You will see that MembershipRule and MembershipRuleProcessingState are blank. Let's set those items (2 options are given for MembershipRule as example).

  • set-azureadmsgroup 654654654654 -membershipruleprocessingstate on
  • set-azureadmsgroup 654654654654 -membershiprule $dynamicmembershiprule
  • set-azureadmsgroup 654654654654 -MembershipRule "(user.department -contains ""Marketing"")"
  • set-azureadmsgroup 654654654654 -GroupTypes "DynamicMembership"

Requires a P1 license. $6/user/month.
